The account against the Commonwealth for ihe support of State 
Paupers the past year is $2951 01, and several small accounts a- 
gainst towns remain to be collected. The claims against the over- 
seers department, (including money borrowed of the Town Trea- 
surer,) amount to about $4300 00. 

The increased number of persons requiring assistance and the 
advance prices of the jjrincipal articles of sustenance have increas- 
ed the expenses of the Overseers department, so that there is a defi- 
ciency of about $1000. 

Medford Street, and two streets leai3ing from that to Bunker-Hill 

street, have been ^radod dunng the past year under the supervision 

of Mr. Gideon Foster, the care and labor of vvhieh he voluntarily 

took upon himself in addition to his other duties. 

Respectfully gubinitted, 

JAS. K. FROTHINGHAM, Chairman of Overseers. 

Charlestown, Feb. 23, 1833.

hundred and twenty three dollars and thirty three cents.
